Question: Okay, so, I've decided to try and write a book of sorts. Im 13, I know its hard, but Im willing to try, so here's the main story line. The year is 3026. The continents have combined over-time to create two different countries. Africa with America are now known as The State. The rest of the continents are known as The Land (still working on names, any suggestions would be great.) The State is split into different countries known as Sectors, numbered one-seven. In the Land, they have Blocks numbered one-seven. Elyse is fifteen, she'll be sixteen in a few days, she should be excited. But she isn't. In The State, when a child reaches the age of sixteen, they are Taken. People arrive on their birthday, at precisely midnight, to escort the teen from their homes. They have no choice whether they stay or not, either go with them, or refuse, and be forced away.. Where they go, nobody knows. The child doesn't return and won't as far as the the population of The State know... Okay, so thats the main story part, main character is Elyse, her friend Ash is also one of the characters, but not a main one. How does that sound? Would you read more? Should I make Elyse NOT get Taken, or find out something terrible when she IS Taken? Any advice would be great! Thanks.

It sound a little bit like the hunger games... Its a good idea but you need to develop the Taken idea, I mean, where are all the adults? What happened to them, were they taken at any point of their life? And maybe she should meet her friend once taken... because if shes taken I doubt she would be kept with people she knows, maybe they could be split in groups of seven, one from each sector or block. I don't know, you need to develop the idea more or it'll look like you copied from the hunger games

a good thing to maybe add or explain is the whole taken at 16 thing, are there no adults around then? did the "law" just come in recently? she could be taken along with her friend, but Elyse should escape before she gets to the unknown area and try to save her friend, uncover the truth and stop the maddness just an idea, sry

You haven't specified in what context. Do you mean on Y!A? If so, I'm pretty sure you can't; the site recognizes URLs and makes them into links, and that's about it. If you're actually making a web page, it depends on what you're using to edit it. If you're directly editing the HTML, the code will look something like this: link text That would make the phrase "link text" a link to http://www.example.dom/ Of course, I imagine you're actually using some sort of HTML editor that hides the code. Not a problem, as all HTML editors should be able to handle this case. I can't tell you specifically what to do, as *you didn't specify anything about the software*. But if it has a typical interface, you might try simply typing the text over the URL that's shown. Or you could try right-clicking on it to see if there's an option to edit the link. In either of those cases, the best way to change the font size is by using Cascading Style Sheets. One question is, do you want to make just that one link smaller, or a certain set of them, or all links? I'll take these cases one at a time. For the single-link case, you can set the style directly from the HTML itself, like this: blah blah That would make the text inside 90% the size of the surrounding text. Instead of 90%, you can use an absolute size, like 10pt. Alternatively, you can give the link an id, by adding id="foobar" (or similar) to the A element. Then you can address it from a separate style sheet: ... ... ... (The dots "..." show where I've trimmed irrelevant stuff out for this example; obviously you don't put them in real code.) To affect a specific set of links, there are a number of ways to do it. You might go by context (say, when the link is in a bulleted list), or create a class and assign it to each of those links. For instance:
How do i make a hyperlink smaller and make it read what i want it to say?
The HTML for a hyperlink allows you to specify separately what displays on the screen and what is actually in the link. You can also control what shows up when you hover over the link as the "alt" tag.
